I devised this recipe tonight and thought it was pretty good. It’s not spicy at all.

  • 22 oz. tomatillos
  • 4 jalapeños
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ¾ cup chopped white onion, rinsed and soaked in a solution of water and lemon juice for at least an hour
  • ¾ cup corn kernels
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • juice of 2 key limes
  • ¼ cup tequila
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • olive oil

Coat the tomatillos and jalapeños with oil and grill or broil them until the skin peels. Blend the tomatillos, jalapeños, and garlic to a chunky puree. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Refrigerate and serve within an hour.
